In that box of memories I unearthed was a fancy apron.
Year and years ago teenage cousins were asked to help serve the bridal table. You know go for coffee refills and fetch extra napkins and make sure everyone had what they needed. At our wedding the "waitresses" were my cousins; Diane, Vickie and Max short for Maxine although most of the time we called her Zeeny.
In fact it took a village/lots of cousins to have a wedding reception in the church. Far Guy had some cousins that helped out also and probably wore the pretty little aprons!
I think 400 people is a stretch...but there were lots of people on that cold December day.
Note: 50 years ago all the women that were married are a Mrs somebody...if you are married you lost your first name.
Update From Sharon: Yes Connie, you did have ice cream and I was so nervous serving it because there were so many people!
Update from Bonnie: I remember serving coffee on a fancy china plate☕️.
